The XXY chromosome pattern can not be changed. But, there are a variety of ways to treat the symptoms of the XXY condition.

  • Educational treatments – As children, many XXY males qualify for special services to help them in school. Teachers can also help by using certain methods in the classroom, such as breaking bigger tasks into small steps.
  • Therapeutic options – A variety of therapists, such as physical, speech, occupational, behavioral, mental health, and family therapists, can often help reduce or eliminate some of the symptoms of the XXY condition, such as poor muscle tone, speech or language problems, or low self-confidence.
  • Medical treatments – Testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) can greatly help XXY males get their testosterone levels into normal range. Having a more normal testosterone level can help develop bigger muscles, deepen the voice, and grow facial and body hair.  TRT often starts when a boy reaches puberty. Some XXY males can also benefit from fertility treatment to help them father children.

One of the most important factors for all types of treatment is starting it as early in life as possible.
